The list of projects around our house seem to never end, but maybe because I keep adding to them. For a while now I have wanted to add some interest to our entry hallway. Right now, it’s just pretty basic. I honestly don’t even have an piece of furntiture in the space. I have been begging and pleading handy hubby to add some board and batten, and over the weekend he surprised me with the materials after making a trip to Home Depot.
This project honestly cost us about $20 in wood and took less than an hour. Granted it is a short wall but the outcome was amazing. Wow! What a different some wood and paint can do to a space
We started by measuring the distance between the space. We wanted the vertical boards to be evenly spaced along the wall. We marked our halfway point and nailed the first board. *All our boards were 3.5” in width. Then we placed two more boards, one on either side of the middle board to create the vertical part of the board and batten.
Lastly, we cut on long board that would be placed on top going horizontally across.
And then that is it! We caulked and filled nailed holes and then painted it all in Alabaster in semi gloss by Sherwin Williams.
It definitely made an impact on the space and added dimension and interest. I found a cute bench at Home Goods and the besides some wall art needed, we have a new entryway! We hope to continue this up our stairwell within the next few months, so stay tuned!
